DANJA TALKS “BRITNEY JEAN” AND OPENS UP ABOUT “BLACKOUT”
Danja is finally opening up about his work with Britney Spears and explaining what he thinks she needs to do with her next album.
Danja opened up about his studio sessions with Spears during the ‘Blackout’ era. He revealed he created the “Gimme More” beat in the headphones during a Fantasia session. He also spoke about the the change in Britney during that dark period in her life. He said, “It was difficult to see her go through the transition because we were there through the transition when things got a little rough. We seen a happy Brit to a more to herself.”
Many fans have blamed the lack luster sales of ‘Britney Jean’ due to will.i.am being in charge of the project. The fans were also anticipating a ‘Blackout 2.0′ which was tweeted by Spears and Danja during the studio sessions.
When asked about the rumors that ‘Britney Jean’ was originally going to be like a ‘Blackout 2.0,’ Danja reveals that is what he thought too. But noted that he thinks that maybe will.i.am may have had a different vision for the project.
“That was the information I was given as well. And when I started creating for the project that is the direction I went right into. I guess with will.i.am kind of being in charge of the project he had a different vision and that’s what you got. Yeah, I was hoping it was going to a little harder and a tidbit darker. Hopefully the next one. We’ll see.”
He went on to say, “She’s the originator of hard hitting pop and that’s what she needs to get back to. If she is not going to do that…then Rock. Either way it has to be edge.”
